This morning, Terius Nash (who’s dropping The-Dream moniker, at least for a moment, anyway) teased his forthcoming 1977 with a stream of the album’s first song, “Wake Me When It’s Over.” It’s a slow-building cut that effortlessly sweats big hooks, so it’s like any other Dream song. Which is to say that it’s glorious. (A couple of songs that were posted earlier this summer, “Body Work” and “Fuck My Brains Out,” will not be on 1977 but rather on this fall’s The Love IV.) Head to Nash’s website to hear a stream of the song.
In other Nash news: Though his reaction wasn’t as memorable as these (here’s another), Terius had a pretty great reaction to the Beyoncé pregnancy reveal. Though it goes a little off the rails from there—Nash was “Patroned up“—it was heartfelt and made me feel all fuzzy inside. Love is a beautiful thing, you guys.
1977 is available for free download from Radio Killa Records tonight at midnight.
